Trying to install Diablo on Linux Mint 19.3 and keep getting error "Installing Diablo GOG DevilutionX Linux 64 bits I can't move /home/username/.cache/lutris/installer/diablo/diabdat/DIABDAT.MPQ, it does not exist".

Before it Lutris quickly shows "Running /home/username/.cache/lutris/installer/diablo/innoextract/innoextract --extract /home/username/.cache/lutris/installer/diablo/gog/setup_diablo_1.09_hellfire_v2_(30038).exe --output-dir /home/username/.cache/lutris/installer/diablo/diabdat/
Not a supported Inno Setup installer!
Done with 1 error.
Waiting on children
Exit with returncode 2"

Looks like Lutris tries to unpack .exe installer from GOG after downloading only 305 bytes of it. Manually putting .exe to .cache/lutris/installer/diablo/gog/ does nothing - Lutris just overwrites it with 305 bytes file.

Is there a way to point installer to .exe file directly?

Hello, 2 workarounds:
1) erase lutris cache folder where GOG Diablo setup exe stored
2) disconnect your GOG sync in Lutris import options. Next time you will install a GOG game, Lutris will ask you to show it where you stored the setup exe.

I'm feeling stupid, but I don't see my GOG account info anywhere. Only list of my games on GOG.

Anyway, thanks for pointing me to this. Don't have time right now, but will continue tomorrow or weekend.

on top left click on the cross "add game" --> import game --> click on the GOG icon --> click on "disconnect" icon.
Next time you will install a GOG game, Lutris will ask you for your GOG credentials. Just press escape or "Cancel". Then Lutris will ask you where you stored the game setup file.

Everything works! .

So, yes, after disconnecting from GOG (thanks for the advice, by the way ), Lutris did ask me for .exe file. And from this point install script worked very well.

I successfully install the game and give it a run. Cleared the 1st level. Everything works flawlessly!

P. S. Have no interest in multiplayer, so only single player tested.

Hello little devils,

I just updated my devilutionX portable build/Diablo Lutris script to last git version:
- version 1.0.1 (git commit a09d961 - 9 march 2020)

On Lutris Diablo page, use installer script called "GOG + DevilutionX Linux x64":
